With over eighteen acres of grounds, the Estate offers privacy within a natural setting, surrounded by huge granite boulders, landscaped grounds and fronting the entire beach and rock headland. Situated in an elevated position, the main villa compound comprises six interconnected buildings accommodating the principal suite and living areas, plus a further nine bedrooms together with the dining room and professional kitchen. The living areas open to a substantial freeform pool with panoramic views to the west along the Sir Francis Drake Channel encompassing the southern islands of the BVI, Tortola, Beef Island, Scrub Island and the Dogs.

Paths and a covered walkway connect the principal suite to the dining room building which features an air-conditioned main dining room which opens to wrap around covered terraces for al-fresco dining. The professional grade kitchen with ample food storage, preparation and serving areas connects discretely to the separate service building. The nine en-suite bedrooms are situated within four connected buildings which include a separate living room and kitchenette for additional guest privacy. The bedrooms have different vistas of the sea and gardens and have been thoughtfully designed to maximize privacy. An internal road connects the main accommodation with the beach which includes the “Bali House”, a two storey Balinese style structure overlooking the beach which provides bathroom facilities on the lower level and an open plan dining and day room on the upper level. The Bali House is in the process of being reconstructed. Multiple paths also connect the main house to the beach passing through the dramatic boulder field.
